From Love Field: Our Fi. .has been added to your Cart. I wanted this book because Nellie Connolly uttered the last words President Kennedy probably heard and to which he responded before his tragic demise. The author Don Delillo eloquently summarized the consequences of that horrible day by asserting that "the seven seconds in Dallas (really it was 8 1/3 seconds) broke the back of the American century" (meaning the 20th century).

From Love Field book. Jacqueline Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy sat behind her in the backseat. In fact, Nellie was talking to the president when the first shot rang out. Only hours before, Nellie, a graceful presence and consummate hostess, had arrived at Love Field, Dallas, ready to show of Nellie Connally was in the car that morning with her husband, Texas governor John Connally.

Along with Mickey Herskowitz, a longtime family friend and coauthor of John Connally's autobiography In History's Shadow, Nellie Connally has, at last, broken her silence and given the country a personal point of view of the most controversial and disturbing chapter in its history. About the Author: Nellie Connally, the former Idanell Brill, met John Bowden Connally at the University of Texas; the two college sweethearts were married on December 21, 1940.

"I awakened early on Friday morning, November 22, 1963. The day was gray and somber. Rain was falling...I asked John if I could ride with him to Dallas, and his reply was 'certainly.' We got in the jump seats right behind the driver and secret service man in the front. I was on the driver's side. Mrs. Kennedy was behind me. The President sat directly behind John. We were a happy foursome. I had my yellow roses; Jackie had red ones. I turned to the President as the formation of cars turned onto Elm Street and said, ' Mr. President, you certainly cannot say that Dallas does not love you.'"Nellie Connally, wife of the late governor of Texas John Connally, shares her personal diary of the JFK assassination. While a seminal document in our nation's history-the original document is to be archived at the University of Texas-From Love Field is, at heart, one woman's account of a personal tragedy. Written for her children and grandchildren forty years ago in November 1963, the diary details what it took as a wife, mother, and friend to cope with an unimaginable personal and public ordeal.With the twenty-six-page original document expertly reproduced in its entirely and an additional narrative detailing the days before and after the fatal shots, From Love Field also includes many major newsbreaking revelations that further delineate Mrs. Connally's longstanding dispute of the Warren Commission's findings.Along with Mickey Herskowitz, a longtime family friend and coauthor of John Connally's autobiography In History's Shadow, Nellie Connally has, at last, broken her silence and given the country a personal point of view of the most controversial and disturbing chapter in its history.

Very small but good, factual book from the late Nellie Connally.

I found it quite interesting reading about Mrs. Connally's thoughts about her trip with the Kennedy's in Texas, and being in the limo on that fateful day. I also found interesting the pictures that were included in the book, some of which I have not seen before.

The one thing that I wish about the book is that is was longer, and like one review I read, it does repeat at times, but I also found it interesting how her notes that she wrote were photocopied and included in the book.

One review noted that there were some errors in the book, (and what book other than a fiction book does not contain errors), however I took this book as a reconstruction of Mrs. Connally's impressions of the assassination of President Kennedy and the injury to her husband in the days after it happened. Not surprising, there probably was some confusion, and in fact to this day, there is still confusion concerning what happened in Dallas that day.

I found it very easy to place myself in the limo with her, and follow what she saw and felt.

Even though it is a shorter book, it is well worth reading.

Very interesting perspective to one of the most historic events in American history. I can not say that there was anything in this book that I had not already heard or read, however, it was most interesting to read about these familiar events through the eyes of a woman in the car with the President.

EXCELLENT 5 STAR VERY WELL PACKAGED

I wish the notes that are copied as xerox were easier to read in her own handwriting

amazing story. so sad,

we will never know the truth of who the shooter was, but the truth in the car is amazing

met John Connally at a charity event, very huge Texas presence

I was over the moon when this arrived on the day I left to play Nellie Connally in the film "Killing Kennedy."
I had been researching Mrs. Connally and always came across the same
quotes, short stories, and photos. This book offers thoughts, stories,
theories, secrets, and photos many others missed. I had it with me as the
brilliant artists transformed me into this fascinating woman and near set when shooting her final lines to JFK. I will treasure this book forever.

Just got it two days ago and have nearly finished reading it!
I was really hoping to hear something new about what happened in the car from Daley Plaza to the hospital. Her narrative is valuable but is presented twice in the book (I assume to fill out this tome for publishing). No real insightful stuff here and she must be one of the few people in America to still believe there was a single shooter.
